Epistemology and Teaching Mathematics

Panagiotis Spyrou - Postgraduate - (A-)
University of Athens Department of Mathematics, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

The epistemological questions of mathematics appear important for the teacher of the subject, since it is these that determine the attitude to a set of issues relating to teaching practice. Understanding what we mean by understanding is decisive for the functional identity of the teacher as a key mediator of the production of the educational system. The debate on the foundations of scientific knowledge and the subject's boundaries, helps to increase the maturity and sensitivities to stand in a reflective and metacognitive gaze to the same daily effort. It is considered as necessary not only to be able to teach a subject, but to judge the evaluative context in which it occurs every time that the energy and to read critically educational, philosophical and psychological theories, which often accompany the educational proposals, so to respond constructively to them. Epistemology is introduced as a Knowledge Theory to classic questions the validity of origin and the possibility of scientific knowledge. These questions transforms into different languages and codes during the whole history of philosophy. For Piaget, the epistemology of mathematics has to face three problems: 1) Because mathematics is so effective although based on minimal and relatively poor concepts or axioms? 2) Why are necessary (and universal) character, and remain stable strictly opposed to the construction character that may be a source of irregularities? 3) Why do agree so much with our experience or physical reality as opposed to the absolute productive character? Specifically, there are: 1) Context of justification relating to semantics - Truth. Scientists and philosophers interested in the truth since antiquity. Interested in what's true, what things are what is true, what about any of these things to be true, and how being true associated with knowing or thinking that is true. There are some reasons that people think that the concept of truth is interesting. First because often interested correct inference rules, ie logic and the concept of truth appears to play an important role in this context. For example, a valid argument is an argument which keeps the truth, ie the conclusion of which must be true if the assumptions are true. The concept of the validity of a "rule of inference 'seems to be closely related to the concept of truth. Second philosophy concerned the representation, our ability to think or speculate about the world. A fundamental property of representations appear to be, they can be right or wrong, true or false. Not only that, but in a sense the overarching goal of thought is to acquire true beliefs. The thought aims at truth, that the authoritative references are good references. Questions about the truth seems to correspond to questions on representation or meaning. Finally, something to be true we must be able to know that is true. 2) Context of discovery on two separate frames not always separated: One is the historical context of the emergence of scientific concepts, ie the context of the historical epistemology and the concept of historical shifts theories or even as part of a sociology of knowledge. The other is the context of the emergence of knowledge in each subject, treaty issues involving both cognitive and communicative, and refer to both the individual subject with their epistemological and psychological definitions of and the intersubjective parameters described by social psychology tools. Today, the dominant conceptions of constructional constitution of knowledge (constructivist) need all of the above boxes to support their position: that the course of the production and subjective approach of knowledge and institutional objective of conquering. A program that expects to defend the new research on teaching, at its best, and is represented in characteristic fashion with the project of teaching situations of Brousseau, or its extension to interactivity theories (Interactionism). Also, konstrouvistikes views broader exploit cognitive theories facing itself epistemological questions. In this effort is part of the debate that has opened up in recent years in research on tangible mathematics of Lakoff & Núñez. For the rapporteurs of the theory: The Mathematics of man is tangible, rooted in human experience is completely subjective ... not a matter of simple social conventions ... people understand abstract concepts in concrete terms, using ideas and substantiated reasoning ways to aisthisio- motor system, but not only. The linguistic aspect is important in theory. The mechanism proposed to explain how the resulting abstract through tangible called conceptual metaphor.

Qualitative methodology of research in teaching mathematics

Despoina Potari, Haralambos Sakonidis - Postgraduate - (A+)
Department of Mathematics, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

In this course, the delimitation of the Teaching of Mathematics as a research field is taking place. Key issues, theoretical frameworks and the dominant orientations of research in the field of Teaching of Mathematics are discussed. General research methodology issues such as those related to: a) research approaches, b) construction of research tools, c) sampling and d) patterns of quantitative and qualitative data analysis are analyzed. Still, the main research areas and their respective subjects and methodology are presented. Finally, students are required to write a scientific paper, for which, it is preceded: a) study of articles and discussing questions on them in the direction that has been developed in the respective subjects, b) construction of a small research tool, test and evaluation, c) study relevant articles, planning and organization of research, data collection and analysis.
